Table description


This table provides data about the lifestyle and preventive behaviour of the Dutch population. It comprises the following aspects:
- smoking
- use of alcohol
- length, weight, people who are underweight and overweight
- use of contraceptive pill
- preventive research
- influenza vaccination
- physical activity
The data are based on the Health Interview Survey conducted by Statistics Netherlands. They can be broken down by a number of personal characteristics. The Health Interview Survey is a continuous survey. Its population consists of Dutch residents of all ages in private households.

This table has been stopped. From 2014 onwards a new table is started. See paragraph 3.

Data available from: 2010 up to and including 2013

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are definitive.

Changes as of 5 April 2016
The figures of 2013 can now be broken down by income, wealth and prosperity.

Changes as of 8 April 2015:
The figures on physical activity have changed for the years 2012 and 2013. The calculation was not correct, causing the figures on the percentage of respondents meeting the Dutch Standard for Healthy Exercise to be too high. This was corrected.

When will new figures be published?
This table will no longer be updated. New figures can be found in table Leefstijl en (preventief) gezondheidsonderzoek; persoonskenmerken. See paragraph 3.
